It looks like Verizon Wireless customers are going to be getting a new smartphone to stare at and purchase. The LG Lucid, aka Cayman, has been leaked a couple of times already and today we get to see images that were provided by Pocketnow.com. The images show the new smartphone, front and back, with the custom LG Android user interface and the Verizon Wireless 4G LTE branding on the back side. Other than those two specs, some other features that were not previously known were also provided by the same source. All of this information was provided well ahead of the actual launch information provided by Verizon.
The LG Lucid is a 4G LTE enabled smartphone with a nice 4-inch IPS LCD display with a 480×800 pixel resolution and 233ppi pixel density. The phone is powered by Android 2.3 and comes with a dual-core processor clocked at 1.2GHz, 1GB of RAM, a graphics processor and 16GB of internal storage, which can be expanded with the use of a microSD card up to 32GB in size. The Lucid 4G comes with a 5MP camera that includes an LED flash, auto-focus and geo-tagging. The camera can also record 1080p HD video and the front side of the Lucid sports a smaller VGA web cam for video chat, etc.
The phone supports HTML, HTML5 and Flash with a built in service for uploading to YouTube and Picasa if you choose to use those to applications. Because the LG Lucid is powered by Android, you also get access to the great Google products like Gmail, Music, Search, Maps, Docs, books and more, plus full access to the brand new Play Store app, which used to be the Android Market. The LG Lucid will join the Verizon Wireless lineup soon and sit on the shelf next to some of the other great LG handsets like the Spectrum.
The LG Spectrum features a 4.5-inch 720p touch screen display and 4G LTE support, 1.5GHz processor, 8MP camera, 1GB of RAM, over 300ppi pixel resolution and HDMI connector for TV-output. The Spectrum is quite a bit larger than most phones and can be a little hard to hold at times. Both the Spectrum and the Lucid are 4G enabled and will cruise when connected to one of the fastest 4G LTE networks in the nation provided by Verizon Wireless.
